Assault and Battery Charge Dismissed

The client received an application for criminal complaint alleging that he committed an assault and battery in violation of MGL c 265 § 13A after leaving a bar in Quincy.  The client allegedly got into an altercation with another man and struck that person.  After an investigation into the case it was found that the complainant struck the client first.  Although the complainant went to the police and filed a report, the case was resolved at the Magistrate Session after it was determined that the complainant was the initial aggressor and that the complainant failed to cooperate in the hearing.  The complaint was properly denied.
